2CR trains and tests Counter-Unmanned Aircraft System Mobile Integrated Capability

ROSE BARRACKS, Germany – Low, slow and small is the target of the latest U.S. Army capability, the Counter-Unmanned Aircraft System (C-UAS) Mobile Integrated Capability, or CMIC, to touch down in Germany this month. “The U.S. Army has witnessed drones as a threat in theatre,” said Maj. David C. Andrews, Fires Center of Excellence, C-UAS mobile capability lead. “Our enemies are adapting, and this capability is the leading system to detect and defeat that threat.” As a System of Systems, the CMIC is a mounted non-kinetic capability that combines Electronic Warfare (EW), radar and optic capabilities to detect, identify and defeat UAS threats.
